The vaguely green-fingered thoughts of a rambling rose.

A Brief Respite

Before the next wave of winter arrives, I was able to take a wander around the garden to investigate what was new.  Whilst the light was not at its best, I am enjoying the lighter evenings.

Inside there are some new flower buds forming on the Christmas cactus.  

And the orchids are still flowering their socks off. 

It was Mother's day in the UK on Sunday and my wonderful sons bought me a Ceanothus "Italian Skies".  It did have to hide in the shed while the freezing temperatures hit to protect it, but once it's planted in the spring it should survive the average British winter.
